It has been awhile since TakaraTomy has reissued any G1 Transformers. However, it looks like that will be changing this summer. mike@digital-toys.com has reported to TFW2005 that TakaraTomy will be releasing:

Convoy Renewal Packaging MSRP 5000yen
Megatron Renewal Packaging MSRP 5000yen
Starscream Renewal Packaging MSRP 3000yen
Soundwave Renewal Packaging MSRP 4500yen

These released are going to be the reissues from the TFC Collection. They will have new packaging. There is no word yet if their will be any modifications.

Ooooooo,cool. I hope it's a re-reissue of TFC00 Convoy. Then I wouldn't have to kill someone for one. :grin:

I bet they will whore out TF for a lot longer than that.

It makes sense these if you were to pick the top 4 most well known Transformers, they'd be it.

Dear Primus up in TFHeaven, please please please let it be TFC-00 re-released. I can't afford the prices they ask for him on Ebay and feed me and my wife at the same time.

Yours pleadingly, Yeti!!!!!!!

I *just* bought the latest re-re-reissue of G1 Megatron, so that's a definite pass - new packaging or not. I already have G1 Prime plus the Hasbro Commemorative Edition, so that's a pass as well. And I got the Commemorative Edition of Soundwave last November, so that's yet another pass.

I am slightly interested in Starscream, but unless they release (or confirm to release) the other 5 Seekers as well, I'll probably skip it. I'm getting a little sick of Takara/Tomy and Hasbro never finishing sets of characters.

Still waiting for someone to officially reissue the Dinobots and Shockwave one of these years.

This will work out well so long as they don't price gauge us again. $30 for a autobot car, that ISN'T vintage. Those all sat untill clearance time.

All I can say is "Hell yes".

I knew G1 Prime would be re-released when the movie came out. That's why I haven't bought him for $200 bucks yet.

I got Megs, SW and Screamer, but it'll be nice to finally have the true G1 Prime. As much as I love my G2, Powermaster and 20th Anneversary Primes, nothing beats the original.

Ok, maybe MP Prime does, but the original is totally awesome, none the less. =)

Also, since they're um... re-re-reissueing these guys, they might make new reissues too. Oh man, if they reissued Grimlock, Wheeljack or Omega Supreme, that would almost be too cool. At that point, there wouldn't be many Transformers I'd want to collect anymore.

Excellent. I just pre-ordered the Convoy as I sold
my commemorative on on ebay sometime before the price shot way up and want another badly. It makes me sick knowing what it went for and what people pay for it now.
Of course I do still have the New Years Special.
Hmmm...I gotta take that thing out of storage, I forgot I had it.

Wheeljack's mold is damaged and Omega Supreme is similar to Jetfire in that he was licensed from another company for usage in the Transformers line.

yup. there's no way i'm passing up on the prime.

question: about how much $$ does 5000 yen translate to?
